* Now in convenient trade paperback format, this literary treasure trove is manna straight from bookworm heaven. This timeless and deliciously irreverent tribute to the peerless power of the literary landscape features 104 drawings, each of them certified by experts to be worth a thousand words. The essence of reading, writing, publishing and shelving books is explored in all its glory and absurdity. Here are dead-on portraits and eye-opening ruminations on all things bookish, writerly and readerly, courtesy of The New Yorker's renowned stable of cartoonists, from Charles Barsotti to Roz Chast, Ed Koren to Frank Modell and Jack Ziegler to Victoria Roberts.
Bob Mankoff became the New Yorker cartoon editor in 1997 and is also the founder and president of the Cartoon Bank, a division of The New Yorker, which maintains the Internet's only searchable cartoon archive. He has published four collections of his own work and has edited five other New Yorker cartoon collections, most recently The New Yorker's 75the Anniversary Cartoon Collection (Pocket Books).
